DHARAMSHALA, October 7: The Tibetan Youth Congress, the largest pro-independence group in exile, today commemorated its 45th founding anniversary with an appeal to the Tibetan youth to participate in protests and campaigns to intensify the Tibet movement.

“As Tibetans inside Tibet continue to show immense courage and unity in challenging Chinese rule in Tibet, time has come for exile Tibetans in various countries to take this opportunity to strengthen our efforts for the cause of Tibet,” said Tibetan Youth Congress in its statement for the 45th anniversary.

TYC lauded the Chinese President Xi Jinping for his action against corruption but said that he has failed to improve human rights situation in China and Tibet. The youth group described the Chinese government’s move as a strategy to consolidate the organization and power of the Communist Party of China. It called upon Tibetans to work for the struggle for the cause of Tibet rather than hope for someone else to solve the issue of Tibet.

“The Tibetans are not only denied the basic human rights but even arrested for appealing the government to protect the environment under various trumped-up political charges,” TYC added.

On its 45th founding anniversary, Tenzing Jigme, President of the Tibetan Youth Congress thanked the Tibetan spiritual leader His Holiness the Dalai Lama and all former TYC members for their contribution in the movement.

“These are tough times for the Tibetan movement but we are strong and resilient group of people. The Chinese government will never be able to break the will and spirit of the Tibetan people. However, what is more important is that we Tibetans must never undermine and distort our own history. When we do that we fail all those martyrs who have sacrificed their lives for our nation’s freedom and independence,” said Tenzing Jigme.

To commemorate the occasion, Dharamshala regional chapter of Tibetan Youth Congress organized a marathon run from Tibetan Institute of Performing Arts to Forsyth Ganj and back (about 8Km). More than fifty runners including ten foreigners took part in the marathon. The youngest and the eldest runner were of 9 year old and 61 year old respectively.

Thinley Rabten from Tibetan Children’s Village, Gopalpur and Khando from Tibetan Children’s Village Suja came first winning a cash prize of Rs. 10,000 each and a gold medal in the men’s and women’s category respectively.

Addressing at the modest ceremony at TIPA after the marathon, Chief Guest Ajay Singh Mantokia, President of Indo-Tibetan Friendship Association, described the day as “Auspicious” and “historic” and said, “We have full hope that you will succeed in your aims and ambitions and all the ideas that you have cherished. We, your Indian friends, have been with you for many many years, we understand your anguish, we understand the suffering that you have undergone. Please rests assured our support is always there with you in whatever way we can, we have always stood by you.”

Founded in 1970, Tibetan Youth Congress has over 35,000 registered members under its 88 regional chapters in 12 countries.
